Early Learning Alliance is working to improve our community’s early learning system by building on existing resources. We seek to ensure young children and families thrive by making programs and supports more available, accessible and effective.

Using the theory of Collective Impact, we believe that bringing together early learning providers, K-12 education, healthcare providers, human and social services, local businesses, and parents and families will allow us to develop a system to best meet the needs of all children and families in our community. The Lane Early Learning Alliance is focused on reaching young children and their families because the research is clear that giving children a strong start helps set them on a path toward future success in school and in life. Well before the start of kindergarten, a child’s brain has already created the foundation for future learning and development.
